General tips

  1. Due to the boss's huge size, you can stand under his legs and attack from there, especially if you prefer melee combat. Watch out, however, as he might hit you with his arms or stomp his feet, which are attacks he uses frequently if you stay under him for too long.
  2. His weapon attacks cause the ground to shake, which can hurt you even if you think you are far enough away. For this reason, it's a good idea to move away from the boss when he attacks with his club, or to perform a perfect dodge as the club is hitting the ground.
  3. The boss can hit with his club multiple times in a row. When this happens, he will most likely end its series of attacks with a powerful club strike to the ground. This attack can hit you even from a long distance and after driving the club into the ground, he will pull it out moments later, dealing even more damage.
  4. When fighting this boss, stick close to the wall. If the boss starts attacking while you're close to the wall, he will often hit it, making his attacks bounce and interrupt his attack chain.
  5. It's a good idea to equip a heavy weapon and hit the boss with a charged attack. This works well, because the boss will be slightly staggered after one strong hit. You will also have a small timeframe to use fast attacks against him.

Mage build - how to fight?

When fighting the Stonedigger Troll, try to position yourself closest to the wall. His attacks have a long-range, meaning they will often hit the wall. This will cause the boss's attack to deflect from the wall and end his series of attacks. If you're playing as a mage this will be a very easy task, as your tactics involve gaining distance from the Troll and pelting it with spells at range.

You can also use summons in this fight, so it's a good idea to spend some mana and summon a pack of wolves. This will make the boss focus on them instead of you.

If you're forced to fight in melee it'll be much better to run between his legs and provoke a stomp attack which is easy to dodge - Elden Ring: Stonedigger Troll - boss, how to beat? - Limgrave - Elden Ring Guide

His slowest attacks are usually the most powerful ones, so when you notice that the boss is performing a given hit for a long time, it's best to move as far away from him as possible - Elden Ring: Stonedigger Troll - boss, how to beat? - Limgrave - Elden Ring Guide

Melee build - how to fight?

The Stonedigger Troll is a tough opponent that requires composure and caution in close combat. This huge boss performs powerful attacks with its weapon. You can avoid them by rolling, but remember not to do that too early. The boss takes a moment to attack, so wait patiently until he actually swings the weapon.

A good tactic is to get right below the enemy - Elden Ring: Stonedigger Troll - boss, how to beat? - Limgrave - Elden Ring Guide

A good tactic is to get right below the enemy. Then the Troll will miss you with his weapon. However, the boss will try to crush you - watch out for his attack where he hits the ground. However, they are easier to avoid than regular attacks. Don't go overboard with the offensive, or you will be crushed and stunned.

Stay close to the boss's legs and attack with single strikes while observing the enemy's behavior. When the boss raises his leg, quickly dodge in the opposite direction or run away by sprinting. Do not lock the camera on the enemy, because it will make it difficult for you to see and avoid attacks.

Try to stick to your opponent's back and hit his legs from behind - Elden Ring: Stonedigger Troll - boss, how to beat? - Limgrave - Elden Ring Guide

Try to stick to your opponent's back and hit his legs from behind. Use single attacks and watch if the boss is going to hit the ground. If you deal enough damage, the Troll will fall to the ground. Then you have the opportunity to land a series of attacks until your stamina is exhausted.

When the boss's health drops below half, he will start attacking with a powerful charge and hitting the ground furiously. Don't stand in front of the boss. The opponent will move forward and then fall on his stomach. When you see the enemy moving forward, it's best to go behind him. This gives you the perfect opportunity to focus on attacking with a series of strikes.

Killing the boss may take some time due to his high health pool - Elden Ring: Stonedigger Troll - boss, how to beat? - Limgrave - Elden Ring Guide

Killing the boss may take some time due to his high health pool. Repeat the tactic until he is dead. You can also make the fight easier by using wolves ashes. They will distract the Troll and allow you to easily get behind the boss's back, where you are safe from most attacks.
